2/3 Goat (pronounced: Two-Thirds Goat) is not your average New York City based farm band. On November 20th they will release their sophomore album Stream of Conscience, which was recorded entirely on vintage equipment, along with a music video for the title track, taking a stance against mountaintop removal coal mining.
Fronted by lead singer Annalyse McCoy, the band’s fusion of Folk, Blues, Rock, and Country summons the likes of vintage era Cash & Carter with a contemporary spin, and echoes their diverse roots. Have a listen.
A Statement from The Band Against Mountaintop Removal Coal Mining:
2/3 Goat has taken a stance against mountaintop removal coal mining, which is destroying the land and the people where Annalyse McCoy is from. Coal has been king for over a hundred years in Appalachia. Taking rock from under the ground is one thing; but blowing up mountains, burying thousands of miles of freshwater streams, inciting flooding in areas where it’s never been a problem, and causing the highest cancer rates in the nation from industry runoff is another. Mountaintop removal also takes away more and more jobs from an area that desperately needs them. It’s time we take a stand. Our song and music video “Stream of Conscience” are focused on this very topic. Appalachia is Rising!
